He's referring to the IL 137 'Amstutz Freeway' in Waukegan.

BTW, there are many 'unbuilts' in metro Milwaukee, too, and their 'ghost' ends are very visible on air photos.

Paris

A15 ends here then become a boulevard... the 3,6 kms missing to reach Paris' ring road "Périphérique" have never been built.


A15 should have interchanged with the 'Périphérique' here :


Eastern branch of the A199 won't get any further...


... it should have been throught this zone :


...and interchange with the A104 here :


...but the 1,3 kms missing will never get built.


Whereas the western branch of the A199 will never get built neither. It now ends here, and become an avenue.


...while on the original plan it should have went throught the green diagonal you can see here (nowadays frozen terrains, which in the future will probably be converted for Light Rail use).


A104 won't get any further South. Nowadays it only serves a local industrial zone.


A103 ends here :


A87 will never get built (you can guess where it should have been built by following the green line going North-South).

The notorious 7km gap of the A4 in The Netherlands. This is build in the late sixties, and never completed to date.

Here is Toronto today...



Pretty much the same, though the suburbs got their freeways at least. As for the city itself, it got its Spadina line extension, but that's about it...

north of la in Via Princessa there was suposed to be a freeway connecting ca 14 with interstate 5 near Magic Mouantian. Only the interchange with the 14 was ever built.

They have recently been made into on/offramps of the 14.

What about the Brussels bypass? Are there any plans for making it a real circle, or it's one of the "dead and incomplete motorways" stories?

It is an egg-shaped ringroad. But there are parts on the eastern side which aren't up to motorway standards.

But i think there is more need for an better ringroad of Antwerp.

I shall have to find pictures of the incomplete freeway into downtown - MacKenzie Ravine - it was supposed to have Stony Plain Road (then a highway) cut through the ravine into the valley and into the downtown - they flattened out portions of the ravine but never actually paved the ravine. It is now a park with a biking trail.

I noticed this too when i drove there.

Maybe they used to plan the A4 right through the city instead of southwards near Krakow.

Route 15 was originally going to be an expressway from Painted Post/Corning, NY, all the way down to Williamsport, PA. The expressway only went about 10 miles south of Painted Post. The road will finally become an expressway in the next few years as the future I-99 is built up through Central PA past State College and Williamsport to Painted Post and the I-86 intersection.





An outer partial-beltway was once proposed for Buffalo, NY. That beltway would've had Niagara Falls at the northern terminus. An expressway was built along the Niagara River from downtown Niagara Falls eastward into the farmland. The beltway never came to life, and the expressway became known as the Robert Moses Parkway and LaSalle Expressway. The Expressway ends at Williams Road.
